About Our Program

The CSP is made up of various primary components. Each of these components work together to provide a comprehensive and individualized program based on the need of the student.

The CSP is a proactive, person centered planning approach, that supports students on a daily basis who are unable to consistently identify their needs and/or initiate requests for necessary supports. Some of these tailored services include coaching, tutoring, mediation with instructors, mental health service coordination, social and leisure activities, dorm living support and appropriate family involvement. The program emphasizes increasing independence throughout the student’s college experience, including providing guidance and support as students work toward the development of employment skills.
